We have our five winners! Congratulation, e–mails are on the way! I loved reading everyones answers, they made me feel all warm and cosy and excited about snow, mince pies, Christmas & hot chocolate!
Caroline Cotterall: I love cold crisp but dry days when the ground is all frosty and the leaves are orange. Snuggling up in front of the fire and drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate.
Alexandra Turner: Getting the tree and decorations out, the clocks going back (an extra hour in bed!), lots of nice food and family / friend get togethers. Father Christmas is beginning to make a reappearance in my house as I have two year old twins. Looking forward to leaving out mince pieces and carrots for reindeers. Also my birthday is in winter (just after New Year) and I’m now planning my winter wedding that’s happening in January 2014.
Rachel: I know it’s silly to have a “season” for eating things, because really you can eat whatever whenever, but I feel like winter-time has the best food and drink – pumpkin stuff, nog, gingery things. So I guess my favourite thing about winter is food!
J Applebee: My favourite thing about winter: Spending the extra-long nights with people I love. I adore waking up to hot crumpets and jam, warm smiles and hotter kisses. Makes slugging to work through the wind and rain worth it just to have that first.
Sal: My favourite thing about winter is easy – CHRISTMAS!! I love everything about it. And of course – Winter is Snow Fairy season!
Are you feeling a little tired after spending October cooking, eating, blogging & commenting up a storm for Vegan MoFo? Are you as in love with everything LUSH as I am? Do you live in the UK or Ireland? If the answer to all of these questions is Yes, Yes, YES then boy do we have an awesome competition for you!
LUSH have generously offered to give away five, yes, FIVE, Winter Wishes giftboxes to you, our lovely MoFo blog readers. As I said before I’m a little bit in love with LUSH. I currently have three different LUSH shower gels on the go (Twilight, Happy Hippy & Snow Fairy) and my favourite way to wind down after a stressful day is a relaxing glitter-filled bubble bath using one of my favourite bubble bars. LUSH are one of my favourite companies ever. They’re super animal friendly – most of their products are vegan, including their entire new make up range. Nothing is ever tested on animals by them or their suppliers and they’re involved in loads of wonderful campaigns, from human rights to animal rights and beyond.
This great giftbox includes a little bit of everything; two lovely soaps, including the one I have in my bathroom right now, Snow Globe, the all-new and super exciting orange juice, plum & cinnamon infused Ponche shower gel which is sure to perk you up on a cold winter morning, and an Each Peach massage bar which will definitely help you relax & wind down after all of this strenuous MoFoing.
To enter just leave a comment below before 3pm GMT tomorrow telling us what your favourite thing about Winter is. Please be sure to leave a valid e-mail address so that we can contact you if you win. The winner will be randomly selected and announced after the giveaway has ended. This competition is only open to anyone living in the UK & Ireland.
